Trimbach Clos St Hune 2017
Considered one of the greatest dry Rieslings in the world, it is sourced from a 1.67ha plot inside the Rosacker Grand Cru in Alsace, which the Trimbach family have owned for more than 200 years. These bottles of Trimbach Clos St Hune has been stored in the same temperature controlled cabinet since release date.
“Clos St Hune, the Alsace Riesling by which all others are judged.” Andrew Jefford.
"Vivid straw-green with gold highlights. Highly aromatic on the nose, revealing hints of pear, lime, white pepper, candied ginger, quince and even raspberry. Enters sweet, then turns more austere and piercing. The penetrating, long, very suave finish offers complex, concentrated flavors similar to the aromas. That rare note of raspberry repeats in the mouth. A readier-to-drink CSH than usual, but it will age well. The Clos has been organically farmed since eight years ago, and I while I am very careful about making blanket statements on this subject, I think that the wines are now even better than they were before. Whether it’s the organic farming or not, I don’t know, but the possible connection is intriguing, to say the least."
